Mitt Romney Misspeaks, Calls America A Company

Mitt Romney Misspeaks, Calls America A Company

up

Mitt Romney misspeaks again, this time in Lakeland, Florida earlier this morning.

MITT ROMNEY: Paul Ryan and I understand how the economy works. We understand how Washington works. We will reach across the aisle and find good people who, like us, want to make sure this company deals with its challenges. We'll get America on track again."

Andy Kroll at Mother Jones offered this assessment:

It's not surprising Romney would make this slip. He made his name—and his fortune—turning around failing companies first at the consulting firm Bain and Company, and then at private equity firm Bain Capital. Indeed, his experience turning around failing or bloated companies is central to his pitch to voters for why he should be elected president. But voters may not appreciate Romney confusing the USA with an LLC.
